ANAHEIM, CA, April 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioCorRx Inc. (OTCQB: BICX) (the "Company"), a developer and provider of advanced solutions in the treatment of alcohol and opioid addictions, today reported that Dr. Mark Siegel, commented on the advantages of sustained release naltrexone implants in treating addiction on Varney & Co. on Fox Business. The interview follows a similar report on Fox Business with actor Jeremy Miller, best known for his role as Ben Seaver on the hit TV show Growing Pains, in which Mr. Miller discussed how BioCorRx’s sustained release naltrexone has changed his life.
In the interview, Dr. Siegel commented on excitement around the concept of an implant that gradually releases the treatment. He further noted that the future of treating addiction will include products such as a sustained release naltrexone implant, which goes right to the source of the problem – addiction centers in the brain. As previously reported, BioCorRx is pursuing FDA marketing clearance for its sustained release naltrexone implant, BICX102.
